since I was the first to post about this (I think?), here's some update.

looks like PS Audio will be releasing a new amp based on Hypex modules somewhere this year, but not on NCORE. UCD400 will be used instead:
New PS Audio Amplifier - PS Audio Discussion Forum

slightly off-topic, but since it initially seemed to be about NC...

and... there are some interesting developments over at AC. looks like they have an official "NCORE hate thread" LOL well, it's reaction and counter-reaction.
also, you might be entertained by reading the NCORE improvements discussion.
all good literature.

ok...
the "not for the fan boy NC thread" which turns to be some guy who never heard it but seems to know for a fact it must be hype: Thoughts on the sound from those who aren't Kool-Aid drinking fanboys.

and the modifications thread: Ncore Improvements

where, as usual, you''ll find that Bruno can't design a power supply and that he did not audition multiple brands of resistors to select the best sounding one.

Thanks!

Yes, lots of the usual audiophile voodoo. I see some of the people who have figured over here seem to be rather active on the tweaking thread over there. Funny that there seems to be less of the silly tweaking going on here on diyaudio (where, in a rational world, you would expect more DIY than in a pure audiophile forum)...

The world wouldn't be any the worse if Audiocircles (AC) just disappeared. One needs take a great deal of what is said there about the ncore with a grain of salt. Several prominent members who were pushing the nc1200 were later found to have been beta testers who received sweet heart deals on their amps. When informed of this, the site owner simply said "so what?"...So much for any ethical standards. It makes one wonder what other pimping and shilling is done there, both known and unknown...Like I said, a grain of salt...

By the way, the person that started the "Thoughts on the sound from those who aren't Kool-Aid drinking fanboys" ended up buying a set of ncore amps....how ironic....

Maybe this forum just isnīt what it used to be then...

Interesting reads, though as always a good pinch of salt and reasonable sense is good measure - which regards this forum/thread just as much, mind you

Or perhaps people into genuine DIY have a more rational and knowledgeable view than the average audiophool...

it's the same on a local audiophile forum. the lengths people are willing to go to make money are incredible. someone close used to say: life is about $$$ and sex. I'm always sad to be reminded (at least of the former part) of that even on an audio forum. it's even sadder considering that many of the readers are totally unaware of the "underground" workings. there's always the fallacy of them saying "do you really think that all audio makers and dealers are cold-hearted, money grabbing con artists out to get you?". like we're supposed to think "oh, no, that can't be"

Just a very tiny bit of self-reflection would probably have questioned the self-reviewing...

That is of course very difficult to quantify in any objective manner, which actually IS the point
